Proudly Serving the Local Community

Established in 1974 to help keep swimmers safe at Lighthouse Beach, Tacking Point Surf Life Saving Club (SLSC) has been serving the local community for nearly 50 years.

The Club’s name is derived from the nearby Tacking Point headland, which features the iconic Tacking Point Lighthouse. Built in 1879, Tacking Point Lighthouse is the third oldest lighthouse in NSW and was converted to automatic in 1919.

The late Alderman Norm Matesich played a key role in establishing the Club, with his family still actively involved to this day.

As well as providing essential lifesaving services for the community, Tacking Point SLSC also operates a recently renovated licensed bar on Sundays 3-6pm, with the venue available to hire for functions and parties throughout the year.
